I got the Japan version of the RE5 demo online and played it in the 360 so I'm sure we'll be able to play this somehow. It has English built into it so I'm sure they knew we'd try and get it.

Not really into rasslin' anymore, but I played the hell out of Fire Pro Wrestling S: 6 Man Scramble back in the day on my Saturn. Still have my copy in fact.
Curious to see some screen shots of this one.

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

All you have to do is buy a Japanese points card (ticket) and create a Japanese account on our US PS3s by just selecting Japan for location.

The cheapest ticket should be enough points, it'll cost around $30-$40 or so.

I want this bad, bad, bad. This is exactly what I've wished for on this generation with all the downloadable games. I'll buy this as soon as I can once it goes online. There's no way I'll wait for the US version, I wont be able to.

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

I've heard so much about this, and I've been hoping it becomes a dl game. Seeing as how it has english built in, I can't imagine this not making it's way over here sooner or later.

LOL at the first reply:

To toy with people's emotions like that and to REALLY make it sound real, you're dog shit. Period. I'm outta here, forever.

Sorry for contributing to getting people's hopes up.

Re: Greatest Wrestling Game EVER gets better! Fire Pro HD announced!!!

I don't know what is worse; the idiot who lied or the idiot owner of the site putting on this long diatribe saying nothing and not kicking that asshole out of the site and apologizing to the rest.

http://www.fireproclub.com/forum/vie...p?f=35&t=20799

The owner apparently doesn't understand that his board has lost all credibility it had with one swoop. What a fucking idiot!

I had also told my friends about the game, and was looking around to buying any card that could allow me to purchase it. Luckily I didn't go forward with this. I suggest that the mods here re-title the thread and add the word Hoax to it.

Heh. I love that people call what this guy did a "heel turn". That's perfect. When April fool's goes wrong.

I think it would still be a good idea, if possible, to port the latest PS2 game to PS3 and 360 as a downloadable thing. I would still be happy to play that.

But it wasn't an "April Fools" joke! An April Fools joke is one that is started on April 1st and ends then too.

What that asshole did was start the "joke" in March and perpetuated it until April 2nd.

It was a total hoax that made the owners of the FireProClub forum look like complete idiots. They're the real "victims" in this.

Wow, just read that. What a fucking retard! Sounds like a stupid hippie who wants to punish the perpetrator by just saying "you hurt my feelings!" and thinks that that "shame" will be worse than anything else.
